Recently, Aaron Carter took some shots at Justin Bieber saying that Justin owes everything to Aaron’s Party paving the way for cute kid singers. Today his older brother Nick Carter says that it’s a good thing social media wasn’t around during the Backstreet Boys’ heyday, because they were even wilder. He said, “Justin Bieber couldn’t hold a candle to what we did.”
“There is some [stuff] that A.J. (McLean) and I both did that I’m really glad that social media wasn’t around for because Justin Bieber couldn’t hold a candle to what we did.”
Of course, Justin has egged his neighbors’ houses and peed in mop buckets, but what did the Backstreet Boys do? They didn’t get specific, but A.J. said, “Anything from me being drunk or irate at a club or me walking naked down the hallway in a hotel for no apparent reason. Just random stuff that never really got out.”
A.J. also said it was harder back then, because without social media, they did constant interviews to stay in the press. Now, young stars like Justin can stay relevant with daily Instagram or Twitter posts.
